Junker Headquarters – Your Source For All Things Snatcher

This site is an invaluable resource for fans of the Konami “digital comic” adventure game “Snatcher”, with full translation for the original MSX release, to resources and trivia regarding the later (PC-8801, TG Super CD2 (which I own), as well as Sega CD, Sega Saturn, and Playstation) releases. Also covers related material, which is surprisingly extensive.

For those of you unfamiliar with the game, the plotline is kind of a hybrid of “Terminator” and “Blade Runner”, but darker and viscerally creepier. You play as a hunter of “Snatcher” cyborgs that literally steal the skin of their victims in order to disguise themselves. The game contains some of the most legendary examples of video game gore ever, including a game over scene deleted from every American translation. Awesome.
